Robin Day Anniversary Editions | Online Exhibition
twentytwentyone’s longstanding relationship with Robin Day has been reflected through several new launches to celebrate out 25th year. The award-winning Reclining chair has been issued as an Anniversary Edition.
In collaboration with The Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation and Mourne Textiles, a special version has been realised, with walnut arms and archival textile woven in Ireland. The production of the Anniversary Edition is limited to those ordered during 2021.
The Transparent Table is a somewhat undiscovered design. In fact, it had no name, until Paula Day suggested its current moniker.
Only one was known to exist and was made by Robin Day for his own home in Cheyne Walk in the early 1960s. It was never produced commercially, and the sole example continued its central role in the couple’s living room when they moved to their home in Chichester.
We wanted to share thoughts and reflections on what makes these historic designs relevant and have approached Paula Day, founder and chair of the Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation and Mario Sierra, Creative Director of Mourne Textiles.
The exclusive Q+A is accompanied by previously unpublished images and a short film exploring the Mourne Textiles mills and workshops in County Down, Ireland.
